Programme Description

Guidance: June 2015 NICE guidance NG9: Bronchiolitis in children: diagnosis and management.

Dr Suneeta Kochhar describes how to implement the NICE guidance on bronchiolitis in primary care. The module outlines what’s new in the guidance, the importance of adequate training to use an oxygen saturation monitor in young children and babies, which symptoms require immediate referral to emergency care or referral to secondary care and the management of children with mild bronchiolitis.

Educational Objectives

After completing this module, GPs and nurses will be better able to:
  • Know what to do differently in practice in light of the NICE guidance
  • Understand the importance of being able to use an oxygen saturation monitor in young children and babies
  • Recognise when immediate referral to emergency care is required
  • Know when referral to secondary care is needed
  • Educate parents about how to manage mild symptoms at home and recognise red flag symptoms in their child that require urgent re-assessment
